Surface Mount LEDs

Tue, 02/13/2001 - 9:48am
Lumex introduces a new family of surface mount technology (SMT) light emitting diodes (LEDs) that offer protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD). These ESD-safe units are ideal for use as indicators in applications where electronic equipment must be protected from ESD hazards. This can happen any time a user touches an indicator and experiences a "static electricity shock". Applications include right-angle panel or fault indicators, where the light source is exposed to an end user.

Lumex's SMF-HM1340XD-L series of LED indicators are available in right angle or straight-up packaging with excellent solder heat tolerance. They can be equipped with any of Lumex's wide range of off-the-shelf lensed T-3mm (T-1) light emitting diodes. Typical choices include standard low current (If = 2 mA) LEDs in red, green, yellow or amber, with blue and white also available. An ESD-safe lens snaps over the LED to complete the package.

The base unit is designed as a mate-able unit. Single units are presented in a tape carrier, with multiple units (with or without lenses) shipped in tubes.
